Do You Hear What I Hear?


How does a young, secular intellectual understand her sixtyish university-professor father’s sudden calling to become an Episcopal priest? This is the question that inspired Minna Proctor’s candid, intelligent, and provocative examination. When her father is summarily rejected, Proctor sets out to find out why the Church makes it so insanely (and appropriately) difficult to join the priesthood and to uncover the historical and doctrinal foundations of its “discernment” process. Confronting the cultural forces that shaped her unreligious early life, her parents’ divorce, and her father’s spiritual awakening, Do You Hear What I Hear? is at once an intellectual quest based on interviews with clergy and religious scholars and readings of classic faith narratives, a wry document of filial love and incomprehension, and a layperson’s fascinating perspective on spiritual calling.
